Artist Talk following 'Black Box: Little Black Book of RED' // Jerusalem meets Berlin

A poetic dance performance of many texts and prose written over several years by Shamel Pitts. It began as a privat book project and developed into a physical visualization of the atmosphere and personal stories. Meet Shamel Pitts and the light artist Tom Love after the show and discuss with us about the personal testament they create. 

The performance uses the metaphore 'Black Box' reffering to the 'Black Box' device found on airplanes. This device is there to survive and record the events that happen after crash. Black Box also refers to a performance space which is usually more intimate then a theater. What does 'Black Box' meen for Shamel Pitts and Tom Love? How did the light artist and the dance performer work together? The audiences are invited to an artist talk about the performance and its creative process.

About the venue:

Dock 11

The factory level of Dock 11 in Kastanienallee in Prenzlauer Berg is a rehearsals room, teaching studio and dance stage in one. The stage programme has interdisciplinary supplements such as theatre, performance, literature, music, visual art, film and club art – however the main focal point of every performance is on purely dance elements. Together with its other premises in EDEN***** in Berlin-Pankow, Dock 11 has established itself as an important part of the Berlin dance scene. The unique combination of teaching, rehearsal and stage generates an exciting change of perspectives in both the artists and pupils, as well as among the audience.  (source: visitberlin.de)


About the Festival and the additional program:

Jerusalem meets Berlin

This festival will be accompanied by workshops for professionals as well as non professionals from all ages, lectures, artist talks with Theater Scoutings and panel discussions. The panel discussion 'The role of culture in an era of social and demographic change' deals with the issues of ethnicity, migraton, nationality and re-examines the role and responsibility of the artistic act.
